2002-08-28 9:15:04 AM  
Nice one...
I just love "Where can I find information on giant monkeys?"

(Are we sure this is a hack ?)
2002-08-28 9:15:31 AM  
That's the best site I have ever seen. Congrats, hackers!
2002-08-28 9:15:36 AM  
New desktop for me!

That is well funny.
2002-08-28 9:15:46 AM  

Ah crap it just went down.

Some articles were up, did anyone get a mirror?

How Piracy is Beneficial to the Music Industry.

2002-08-28 9:15:50 AM  
Subtle. Funny as hell. Too bad they didn't sign it ;)
2002-08-28 9:15:51 AM  
If you mirror it, it might be seen as copyright infringement.
2002-08-28 9:15:56 AM  

Totally awesome.

2002-08-28 9:16:03 AM  
hehe... screenshot time
2002-08-28 9:16:22 AM  
I was so disappointed. the RIAA offer *no* information on giant monkeys.
Goddamn tease.
2002-08-28 9:16:32 AM  
Someone who actually gets to this thing, grab a copy. It's showing the web server is too busy right now.
2002-08-28 9:16:38 AM  
2002-08-28 9:16:45 AM  
Great idea for a desktop. If anyone gets a nice crisp screen cap could you post it here?
2002-08-28 9:16:54 AM  
HTTP Error 403
403.9 Access Forbidden: Too many users are connected

This error can be caused if the Web server is busy and cannot process your request due to heavy traffic. Please try to connect again later.

Please contact the Web server's administrator if the problem persists.

Holy cow, that was funny!
I want to find a giant monkey......monkeys make everything funny.
2002-08-28 9:17:15 AM  
Hmmm... I get a 403 access error...oh well. Still better than the original.
2002-08-28 9:17:30 AM  
Owned. Heh heh.

My Favorite:

RIAA against music sharing? Not anymore!

RIAA to sue music sharers? Not Anymore

With the legal file sharing service kazaa still online, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) today announced that it intends to offer the latest albums for download from

As you are probably aware, the RIAA has been pursuing a policy of preventing this activity in recent months

We have recently become aware that this approach is yielding only limited results and in some cases may in fact be harming sales and the artists' revenue stream.

The RIAA wishes to apologise for the heavy-handed manner in which the popular chinese site Listen4Ever was closed down, and would like to present the following items for free download as a token of its goodwill.

Of course the list is relatively small, but please be patient - we expect to offer over 300 next week. We also intend to offer pre-released movies in the coming months.

If what you want isn't on the list, then please try Kazaa Lite - available here

Just got a "HTTP Error 403
403.9 Access Forbidden: Too many users are connected"

Is every Farker on the planet hitting that server ?
2002-08-28 9:21:13 AM  
can't pull up the page.. -=o[

anyone have a mirror?
2002-08-28 9:21:15 AM  

heres the link if someone can host it themselves the original works fine
2002-08-28 9:21:25 AM  
well done. what do people know about this kazaalite? anygood?
2002-08-28 9:22:31 AM  
I didn't get a chance to mirror the site before they caught it (and don't think it's farked - they mosy likely brought it down), but I did get a screen shot of the index page.

I'll post a link to it in a bit. Very funny.
2002-08-28 9:23:17 AM  
The 403 is because they figured it out and shiat themselves, not because their site is getting too much traffic. It's a big site.
2002-08-28 9:23:22 AM  
OK the above link sucks,

Here is the image in its original size if someone wants to post it

Nice, Kodus to the hackers, subtle but funny, still needs a nazi flag in there somewhere.
2002-08-28 9:23:31 AM  

Send me an email: john (at) bourke (dot) ca

I'll put it on mine. I've got a few gigs of traffic I can donate.
2002-08-28 9:23:40 AM  
Here is a link to a large picture of the site

YAY! Priceless! Hackers are soooo sexy cool.

You think so?

802.11 baby yeaaaah
2002-08-28 9:24:15 AM  
It's still up.
2002-08-28 9:24:17 AM  
that link doesn't work BigHonky....
2002-08-28 9:24:53 AM  
As of the moment, the page is still up, all of the downloads still work just fine.

I think their problem is that their server is getting too many hits at once, and it can't handle it, so you get the 403/Access Denied errors.
2002-08-28 9:24:57 AM  
Actually, the site is getting hosed from traffic. If you keep clicking refresh over and over, you eventually get the page.
2002-08-28 9:25:09 AM  
Hacked Site is still up. Just hit F5 a few times, and you'll get in. weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
2002-08-28 9:25:11 AM  
Go to the website and keep hitting F5 or refresh. It will come up.
2002-08-28 9:25:12 AM  
Its back -- but not for long, I'm sure.
